CNN: Facebook bans Louis Farrakhan, Milo Yiannopoulos, InfoWars and others from its platforms as ‘dangerous’. “Facebook announced Thursday afternoon that it had designated some high-profile people, including Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who’s notorious for using anti-Semitic language, and right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, as ‘dangerous’ and said it will be purging them from its platforms.” I am so cyncial about Facebook at this point that I thought, “Oh, I guess Facebook did something that’s about to be revealed and this is some kind of proactive ‘we’re taking active measures’ release.” I don’t know that there IS anything to be revealed, just that I don’t think the company as an entity is operating from any positive motives.
